Tasline Elite Hollow Braid 130lb X 1000m

A very good New Zealand made 12 carrier braid for setting up for jigging, or swordfish gear. As you can slide a mono topshot into the hollow core braid and whip it, rather than having knots in the gear.
This braid has no dies in it, so the splicing needle slides easily into the braid making for quick efficient topshot changes, on land or on the boat.

Tasline Elite is made in New Zealand, from the finest Spectra and other UHMWPE fibers available through Pegasus and Honeywell in the USA. 
Elite White is pure braid, with no coatings or additives, leaving it silky smooth and supple for improved casting distance and extreme fishing situations. Together with a unique heat treatment process developed by Tasline, this braid is tweaked to optimum performance. Manufactured and tested in small batches, to make sure Tasline Elite White is the very best braid available.

Independent tests show with Tasline Elite White you will get the best of both worlds. Smaller diameters to get more line on your reel and higher breaking strains for those trophy fish.

As you probably already know fishing braid made from hi-tech fibres such as Spectra and Dyneema has revolutionized recreational fishing around the world. These so-called super lines are strength for strength much thinner than Nylon mono and much, much stiffer meaning that from the first nudge, you can feel every touch or movement enabling better timing of the hook set and also firmer setting of the hook even at depths over 100m.

Our lines are made here in Christchurch, New Zealand using Spectra yarn which is sourced from Honeywell in the USA. We produce a variety of fishing braids across a number of ranges which are called Value, Premium and Elite.

Our mainstay is the Premium range which gives a good balance between cost and performance and will deliver on the expectations of the vast majority of fishing enthusiasts.
Our Value range caters for our more cost conscious customers and consists of a small range of useful braids which will perform adequately.
At the other end of the spectrum for the most discerning fishing enthusiasts we have developed a special range called Elite

This is where Tasline Elite really shines. Not only is this braid incredibly thin for it's breaking strain but due to not relying on coatings it's also supple and smooth. This enables Tasline Elite to pack on the reel better and "fill the gaps". A stiffer braid will leave significantly more voids when packed on a reel and this should not be underestimated. It's for this reason many Tasline customers are amazed how much more line they will fit on their reels.

Our lines are braided from Spectra™ yarns. Spectra is a brand of gel-spun UHMWPE fibre which is short for Ultra High Molecular Weight Poly Ethylene. This material is one of the small range of super fibres developed over the last decades. Kevlar which is probably the best known was one of the earlier super fibres and has now been replaced in many applications by later arrivals such as gel-spun UHMWPE, Vectran and PBO which are almost twice as strong and also have other advantages. For fishing lines the most suitable super fibre is  UHMWPE because of its strength, UV resistance and lack of problems with water.  The two official brands of UHMWPE are Spectra, made by Honeywell in the USA, and Dyneema made by DSM of the Netherlands. These two brands dominate the market and they both produce UHMWPE yarns in a range of of similar sizes and qualities. The manufacturing process is extremely complex and worldwide demand still exceeds supply as it is used in a wide range of products such as bullet-proof vests, ropes for the shipping industry, space craft etc..

We prefer Spectra for our lines and we have an excellent relationship with Honeywell and have access to their latest technology. Honeywell produce 3 ranges of UHMWPE, Spectra 900, 1000 and 2000, with the latter being the top of the range and the 1000 and 900 being successively lower in strength and stiffness. Broadly speaking our Value range is made from Spectra 900, the Premium range is made from 1000 and the Elite range is made from Spectra 2000.
